With partners like Disney, Toyota, ABC7, NBC4, Pacific Youth Foundation, WSS, and more, it is obvious this is a wonderful group.

Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs is a unified and collaborative force representing all 27 Clubs with the purpose of securing resources, marketing, and financial support to further the efforts of individual Clubs and increase the impact and reach in their communities.

I was introduced to the work of the Boys and Girls Clubs last fall and quickly became an avid fan. The work being done is truly amazing and the clubs make such a substantial impact on the lives of their club members. Their focus on academics, healthy lifestyles, and athletics is right on target. The clubs provide a safe, supportive environment for the children to thrive.
The LA County Alliance, lead by the exceptional Mary Hewitt, provides inter-county coordination between the 27 LA based clubs which through their 140 locations provide support for 140,000 children.

The LA County Alliance for Boys and Girls Clubs elevates all youth development organizations in the County and provides access to state-of-the-art programming for the next generation of the region's leaders. Their executive director is highly knowledgable and has successfully leveraged media in-kind support into corporate support at the County level and community awareness at the neighborhood level.

The LA County Alliance is always working hard and generating new ideas to support the Boys and Girls Clubs. I am looking forward to the annual Teen Summit where the kids are exposed to so much information about empowerment, eduation, careers etc.

The Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs is a fantastic organization! I have always been a fan of The Boys & Girls Clubs - but, the Alliance supports all of the clubs associated with the organization covering all of the Los Angeles County Clubs. Not to mention, Mary Hewitt and Ewan Stark do a fantastic job on all of the great fundraising events that they do!

Boys and Girls Club LA County Alliance has brought so much to so many deserving kids in Southern California. It is so refreshing to see an organization that takes sponsorship dollars and truly spreads it across the groups that make up their alliance. This means these children are getting opportunities that they would not have otherwise gotten had it not been for the individuals that go out on their behalf to secure sponsorships and programming for events, the people that work with the children every day, the volunteers that give their time for various causes and each and every person that donates money to the cause. I look forward to seeing the fruits of all of this labor and love as these children enter the world with knowledge, confidence and the means to succeed.

The Los Angeles County Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs provides many opportunities for the youth of under-served communities in the Los Angeles area to experience transformational workshops and events that inspire them to believe in the greatness that they are blessed with. It is important that youth are exposed to educational, cultural and insightful endeavors to springboard them to Great Futures. This organization does it with such a unique approach and energy.

I love how committed LA Alliance is to benefiting the community and their dedication to support the Boys & Girls Clubs across Los Angeles County. Low overhead and a mobile team makes for an effective nonprofit that pours all its donations and sponsorships right back to the public.
